morning visitor – a white-faced heron

Through the window in my office, I have a good view of the garden and am able to see occasional visitors of note.

This morning it was this white-faced heron.  Because the glare was right behind him, all I was getting on the screen was a silhouette. It took a great deal of pushing the exposure and some other tweaks to get this image happening.
